This video will demonstrate and explain how to use a webbing loop to fasten a “Girth” or “Choker” hitch for victim rescue. This hitch has many uses, but it also works very well for dragging an unconscious victim.
There are obviously many variations for using webbing to affect a rescue, but what I like about the Girth or Choker hitch is that it’s fast and simple to deploy, very effective and easy to remember. One of the big advantages to the technique shown in the video is that the user never has to let go of the webbing, which makes attaching to the victim that much more efficient.
Train, Be Prepared, Stay Safe, Make the Save - SURVIVE!
